The month of February has included plenty of vital Wimbledon victories in recent years – and we’ve put together a video special of the best moments.
Starting with the memorable push for promotion back in 2016, wins during February in recent years have earned vital points to maintain our League One status. Take a look below at six of the best for February:
Barnet 1-2 AFC Wimbledon – 20 February 2016
Played in pouring rain at the Hive, Wimbledon’s fine attacking display lifted the gloom for the travelling Dons that made the trip, as goals by Lyle Taylor and Ade Azeez boosted hopes of a late charge to the play-offs. Of course, a relentless run of form achieved that aim and Wembley glory followed.
Scunthorpe 1-2 AFC Wimbledon – 28 February 2017
Since returning to the Football League, Glanford Park has been a happy hunting ground for the Dons and goals by Dean Parrett and Dominic Poleon turned this Tuesday night trip into a great away day for those Wimbledon fans that made the long journey.
AFC Wimbledon 1-0 Bristol Rovers – 17 February 2018
Just over a month after signing for the Dons, Joe Pigott once again proved his worth as he headed home a late winner, earning three important points. Wimbledon went on to seal survival in the penultimate match of the season at Doncaster.
Rochdale 3-4 AFC Wimbledon – 19 February 2019
Many had already written off Wimbledon’s chances of staying up, the Dons having been 10 points off safety at one stage, but belief in the Dons camp really started to grow after this thrilling win. Joe Pigott’s late penalty won it and sealed his hat-trick after a lovely goal by Anthony Wordsworth had also played a key part.
Gillingham 1-2 - 29 Feb 2020
A last-gasp Callum Reilly goal earned more joy for Wimbledon at Gillingham. It turned out to be Wimbledon’s penultimate game of the 2019/20 season and, sadly, the last occasion that our supporters have attended an away match.
Wigan 2-3 AFC Wimbledon 6 February 2021
Joe Pigott’s goal from the penalty spot lifted Wimbledon out of the relegation zone. Jack Rudoni and Pigott’s first had earlier put Wimbledon 2-0 up before Wigan’s fightback made a game of it.
